Page Yield Up To 470 Pages

This Compatible High Capacity Epson 29XL Black Ink Cartridge is quoted as doing up to 470 pages before needing to be replaced.

The page yield is calculated by manufacturers using ISO/IEC 24711 standards, where they print set documents of 5% page coverage until the cartridge is empty. The standard means you can compare yields between cartridges and manufacturers.

Product Description

This high capacity compatible Epson 29XL black ink cartridge is a brand new cartridge made by a third party manufacturer. It can print up to 470 pages, which is just as many pages as the original Epson version can do.

The cartridge is easily replaced once it's empty, simply open the cover and remove the empty cartridge by squeezing the clip on the side and lifting it out. The new one drops into its place and clicks down with a push.

The compatible 29XL black cartridge is wrapped and then packaged in its own box so if you're not ready to use it straight away you can store it for up to 6 months without its quality being affected.

Everything here at Stinkyink.com is tried, tested, comes with our 12-month quality assured guarantee and free, fast delivery.

Please note: The 29XL range is also known as the Strawberry range.

Running Cost 0.96p per page

Running Cost

This value is calculated from manufacturer's estimates of how many pages a cartridge will print, and should only be used to compare cartridge running costs.

Page yields are estimated using the ISO standard of 5% coverage on a plain A4 page, which is roughly the length of a short letter.

Very pleased will continue to order from you


Fantastic price, quality replacement ink. Prompt delivery.
Definitely use again.


Excellent service and product. Delivered free in 2 days of ordering. Couldn’t ask for better


been using these inks for a while now, and repeatedly order them. no issues. if for some reason the colour does not print, i repeatedly clean the print head/nozzles - possibly up to 20 times until the ink comes through. saved myself buying a new printer at least twice doing this!

We are pleased that the compatible cartridges are working well in your printer.

In between using the printer, if there is a time gap of no use, please switch on the printer every two weeks to keep it maintained.

This will minimize the potential for the inks drying and should also then minimize the need to have to run the cleaning cycles :)

I have ordered VT2991 from yourselves and have now received them.On the box it states UB2991,are these the same high capacity cartridges as the VT?


Yes, the UB before the cartridge numbers are simply the coding from another supplier but will still function the same :)

How much ink is there in the 29XL Black compatible cartridge.


The compatible cartridge will have the same amount as an Epson original which is 11.3ml of ink.

I'll soon be buying replacement inks for my Epson XP-245 for the first time. I've set it up on WiFi and connected my phone to it via the Epson app where I can check ink levels. Will I still be able to see current ink levels for the third party cartridges through the app, or should I stick to originals?



These compatibles work the same as the originals and the cartridge ink levels will work as normal.

i have bought a new epson xp 345, am told it will not take compatible inks of any kind, can you confirm that yours will, i have always used yourselves on my previous printers for the multipacks and would like to continue,
john green


The printer that the 29XL cartridges go in did stop working with the V2 chip but our inks have the V3 chip on them and they work fine. Of course we do still have our 12 month guarantee on them aswell.

My Epson XP235 Printer is relatively new and this is the first time I have had to buy a new cartridge for it. I am hesitant about buying a compatible cartridge in case the printer doesn't recognise it and blocks its use. What do I do if this happens. I have wasted my money. Should I buy the genuine cartridge to be certain it will work?


Like any product we sell, if in the unlikely event that the cartridge doesn't work or you're not happy with it. We will always, offer troubleshooting first then either a replacement or we can get it back for a full refund.
